This Instructional Activity is a part of the Lesson 18, Unit 8, Grade 6. In the previous activity, students considered appropriate measures of center and spread for describing distributions. Here, they show the same data set using three different kinds of graphical representations-a dot plot, a box plot, and histograms using different bin sizes-and decide which are more useful or more appropriate for communicating the distribution.
